Horse drawn trams in Morecambe

I’ve continued to sort through my father’s family archive and came across these two postcards of Morecambe, England. There’s no writing on the backs, and no printed dates, so no positive confirmation of when they were printed or sold, but my guess would be in the 1900’s or 1910’s. It’s a seaside town and from the looks of the first picture, one with horse drawn trams in an earlier time. They remind me of the horse-drawn trams that Vivien Thompson built in her Sept ’73 Model Railway Constructor article. There’s also some fantastic buildings in these pictures. The sign in the lower picture says ‘Midland Railway’ on the upper portion, and that looks like some sort of passenger shelter nearer the rails.
